Goats are not the bravest sign of the Chinese zodiac, so making them open up to you would take a while. They need encouragement to feel at ease. If you have feeling for a Sheep, pour your heart out to them right away, as they are too shy to make the first step.
A Goat's spouse needs lots of care and as little confrontation as possible. If you notice that your Goats partner is blue, hurry up to entertain them with a trip to the outside world and effective communication, otherwise they will soak up stress like a sponge until it is dripping, because Goats hate bothering others with their problems.
